'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Fergie Fumes Over Frivolous Football

United were somewhat reckless after taking an early lead against Inter yesterday night, according to Sir Alex. After a promising opening 20 minutes, the European champions let Inter back into the gameand could have conceded an equaliser. They didn't but half-time couldn't have come soon enough for the boss.

'We started well and after scoring the first goal I thought we could go on and kill them off, but once we started trying to put the icing on the cake we opened the door for Inter and we were lucky to be ahead at half-time.

'We started doing all these little flicks and balls into space when no one was there - back-heels and stuff. It was practice football and it allowed them to get a grip of the game. From the middle of the first half until the end of the first half they were the better team. We can play a lot better than that.'


That's certain but the buck stops with the manager: we just can't afford to start Paul Scholes in a game of this magnitude. His lack of impact made it very difficult as it weakened the engine room and this the forwards didn't get nearly enough support.

However, it's really a sign of the times that we're complaining after a relatively confident 2-0 victory over the Italian champions. This showd what a brilliant team we have right now.
